Doumbek! is the most realistic and comprehensive drumming app for this popular and ancient Middle Eastern drum. Professionally recorded 44.1 khz high fidelity sounds combine with the latest technology to produce the ultimate Doumbek app!

Doumbek! features 6 different doumbeks to play, including an Egyptian Doumbek , a Doumbek with jingles, and small, medium and large Doumbeks.   There's even a unique Doumbek "jam" that allows anyone to easily sound like a pro!   With the ability to adjust reverb, pitch, and delay, and more, it's easy to create your ideal sound.

Doumbek! also features record/playback/loop with multi-track capabilities; play along to dozens of unique drum beats, music loops and metronome sounds from within the app; or play to your favorite music on your iPod. You can also share your drumming via email, Facebook, and Twitter, or export to your computer via iTunes file sharing!

Another great feature of Doumbek! is the ability to play the Doumbek with a variety of other drums and percussion, including Tabla, Pakharaj, and Tambourine.

The Doumbek  responds  to your touch, and the  volume changes depending on how hard you tap the drum, just like a real Doumbek. The pitch also changes slightly depending on where you hit the drum. Playing realistic rolls is as easy as swirling your finger around; the roll speed corresponds to how fast or slow you swirl your finger.
Beginner or pro, to save and to anyone can play Doumbek!.......anytime, anywhere!

Hmm I like it but...

Where are all the features that are listed? I opened the app to only find three drums and no way to adjust the settings, is that only for the paid ad free version?
